Gender, Status, Writing, and the Resolution of Kindergarten Girls' Social Tensions.
Phinney, Margaret Yatesvitch
Linguistics and Education, v6 n4 p311-30 1994
Examined conversations among a group of kindergarten girls who used the school-defined task of writing to maintain social cohesion in their peer social interactions. Because of the genres and form of their writing, they were able to use the writing to further individual status aspirations, which created tensions within the group. (42 references) (MDM)
